Long-term assistance care centers?

Hi,

I hope everyone is doing well. I’m doing some long-term planning for my schizophrenic son. After I die, I would like him to go to an assisted-living center/home that administers medication. He is unable to live on his own and forgets to take his meds. I plan on working as long as possible in order to fund a trust I set up for him. So, my hope is that he can live off the modest trust.

Can anyone recommend any homes or care centers in the U.S. where people are very well cared for and thrive, please? Thank you.

I’ve looked into this a good bit. It depends on what State you live in and how much money you have. These web sites can help

Some facilities take Medicaid, some don’t. The nicer private ones are around $10,000 a month.
Pennsylvania has many choices, Texas has very few. Each State is different depending on how much they fund social services. New York, California, Vermont have some of the most generous programs, while most of the southern States from Texas to Florida have the least.
There are companies that will help you find a place like this one https://carefor.com/
Hope this helps

Mteaver,

All I can say is WOW!! Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge. I’m going to look into these resources. If I keep working until 70, I might be able to afford a $3K/mo place (for the rest of his life). It never occurred to me to look into other states due to better better funding. We live near Atlanta, Georgia.

Ive recently just bought a unit so my son 26 can live in,im in Australia.
